This Homey Crochet Throw demands some effort, but you'll be so pleased with this log cabin crochet pattern that all your hard work will be worth it. Snuggle up in a crochet blanket that was inspired by a classic quilt design. This pattern plays with warm and cool colors, alternating dark pinks and light pinks on one side of the afghan and dark blues and light blues on the other. Change up the color scheme to reflect your guy's favorite colors, and he'll have a handmade throw to keep him warm while you're away.

2. With the exception of the first strip of the first band, you will turn the piece one-quarter counterclockwise to work along the next edge for

Please help, I cant see the picture of the throw ( Where can I find it?

Hello teddyluvza, the image was temporarily unavailable due to a glitch in our system. It has been restored. Our apologies for the inconvenience. -Editors of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

I'm a big fan of this throw pattern. It would turn out wonderfully following the pattern exactly as it is shown, but I think it would also look really fun and interesting with scraps or in a variegated yarn or a mix. It's fun to change things up a bit sometimes!

i love the colors. Thanks for having the pattern right in front of the page.

This afghan looks so comfy, I love the colors too! Can't wait to make this my next project.

I'm in love with the colors on this afghan! It doesn't look terribly complicated, either.
